Let's be honest with ourselves - we all get easily distracted one way or another. It's like our brains are hardwired to get distracted, to shift attention from one task to another. But research says that the state of our attention determines the state of our lives. Watch this TED Talk as Chris Bailey, author of the book Hyperfocus, talks about how our ability to focus is the key to productivity and creativity.

    I absolutely LOVE Hyperfocus! Highly recommend the book.

    A few things I picked up on from the book:
    • Attentional residue - the thing you just focused on distracting you from a new task you're trying to focus on
    • When deciding on whether to do a task, pitch it to yourself and decide if it's worth your attention and time
    • We perform significantly better when we notice that our mind is wondering

    So glad he mentioned he loves to KNIT to focus 11 mins in and not in the beginning.

    Learning how the computer between our ears works should be mandatory learning at young ages.

    This is very interesting information.

    The problem for me like most people is that I can get more done, it's just that the brain would rather focus on things that aren't as productive. As a result I end up spending more time doing things that don't make sense rather than doing the things that will push my business forward.

    Again love the content in the video!
